Long groovy beards have become a trendy fashion accessory for men. Keep it in shape the old fashion way and it becomes even cooler, don’t you agree? And it’s not only for beards; old school razors work for women too!
As with all our daily routines, there are usually a few tweaks that can be made to reduce the environmental impact. That goes for keeping your teeth white and bright as well.
Toilet paper is something most of us use daily without much consideration. But what we’re actually doing is wiping our bottoms with mashed trees and then flushing them down the drain. Pretty wasteful, to say the least. There are alternatives that are not as gross as you might think.
Deodorants are something we’re more or less obliged to use when we enter puberty. Who wants to be the smelly unfresh person? But there are other ways to stay fresh than buying chemical filled plastic roll-ons.
Nothing could be more natural and eco-friendly than sex, right? Well, if you’re trying to avoid pregnancy protecting yourself, then you might want to consider how your contraceptives affect the planet. Birth control pills, for example, leak estrogen into our water streams which can cause damage to marine life.
It’s easy to be seduced by those unbelievably happy women in the shampoo ads swishing their lustrous locks; all those products feel like a must to be a “normal” gal. But, there’s a growing “no-poo” movement that cuts chemicals, packaging and spending, and leaves you with a pretty fab looking do.
Soap always used to be soap, you know in a bar, not all this fancy bottled stuff. But now it’s so easy to fall for the luxurious liquid in its cute bottle with oh-so-convenient pump action. So, I’d like to pay homage to the simple bar of natural soap. Because this humble slab not only helps reduce plastic waste, but also minimises chemicals going into our water and into our bodies.
